View Full Version : Brake Rotors

09-27-2010, 02:27 PM
Can someone please explain what the differences are between the disc wheel brake rotor and the wire wheel brake rotor? If someone could post a picture that would be great. I don't have a reference to go by and I'm not sure that the vendor sent me the correct part. I have a wire wheel '64 Midget and I'm trying to get the front end back together.

Thanks for any assistance!

The wire wheel ones are "short" and would not align with the caliper if bolted to a disc wheel hub.

I guess I will find out which ones I have when I try and bolt it altogether later this week. Would this also cause misalignment issues when trying to bolt the hub to the spindle? If the rotors are different, would this push the hub in/out further since the hub is bolted to the rotor?
